Openair® Plasma treatment of syringe needles: needle hub bonding, print preparation and nano-coating

The barrels of disposable syringes and needle attachments, both mass-produced items, consist of non-polar plastics. This represents a challenge for further processing and packaging with respect to bonding, imprinting and functionalization of the syringes.

Openair® plasma treatment provides a very simple and versatile solution.

  • Secure adhesion. Selective pre-treatment of needle hubs ensures secure adhesion of syringes and needles.
  • Optimal ink bonding. Prior to imprinting syringes, surface tension is increased using large-area plasma treatment of the non-polar plastic, which ensures secure adhesion of the printing ink.
  • Functional nano-coating. Coating the interior of the syringe with a PlasmaPlus® process ensures low-friction functioning of the syringe plunger.
